Treos Wines 2012 Elegant Reserve Estate Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, $48

By on November 11, 2014

Treos-Elegant Reserve Estate Pinot Noir-Willamette Valley-2012-BottleDave Jepson of Monmouth, Ore., released another impressive Pinot Noir from the stunning 2012 vintage, this a melange of five Dijon clones from their small estate plantings. There’s plenty of ripeness and hedonism with the nose of plum, cherry taffy, mocha and black pepper. The palate is rich and loaded with black cherry, President plum and ripe raspberry. Its tannin structure is sublime, yet the finish of chocolate-covered pomegranate supplies plenty of food-friendly juiciness. Enjoy within four years, and suggested pairings range from roasted chicken, lamb and veal to pasta to charcuterie.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 170 cases
